Deuteronomy 27

CHAPTER 27

Stones in the Jordan

And [6assigned 1Moses 2and 3the 4council of elders 5of Israel], saying, Guard all the commandments! as many as I give charge to you today. And it will be in which ever day you should pass over the Jordan into the land which the  lord your God gives to you, that you shall set up to yourself [2stones 1great], and you shall whitewash them in lime. And you shall write upon the stones all the words of this law, as when whenever you should pass over the Jordan, when ever you should enter into the land which the  lord your God gives to you; a land flowing milk and honey; in which manner [4spoke 1the  lord 2God 3of your fathers] to you. And it will be as when ever you should pass over the Jordan, you shall set these stones, which I give charge to you today, on mount Ebal, and you shall whitewash them with lime. And you shall build there an altar to the  lord your God -- an altar from out of stones; you shall not put upon them an iron tool. [2stones 1Of whole] you shall build the altar to the  lord your God, and you shall offer upon it whole burnt-offerings to the  lord your God. And you shall sacrifice a sacrifice of deliverance; and you shall eat there and shall be filled up, and be glad before the  lord your God. And you shall write upon the stones all this law -- [2clearly 1very]. And [7spoke 1Moses 2and 3the 4priests 5the 6Levites] to all Israel, saying, Keep silent and hear, O Israel! On this day you have become a people to the  lord your God. 10 And you shall listen to the voice of the  lord your God, and you shall observe all his commandments, and his ordinances, which I give charge to you today. 11 And Moses gave charge to the people in that day, saying, 12 These shall stand to bless the people in mount Gerizim passing over the Jordan; Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin.

Curses from Mount Ebal

13 And these shall stand for the cursing on mount Ebal; Reuben, Gad, and Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali. 14 And [3responding 4shall say 1the 2Levites] to all Israel [2voice 1with a great], 15 Accursed is the man who shall make a carving and a molten image, an abomination to the  lord, a work of the hands of a craftsman, and shall put it in concealment. And answering all the people shall say, May it be. 16 Accursed is the one dishonoring his father or his mother. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 17 Accursed is the one altering boundaries of the neighbor. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 18 Accursed is the one misleading the blind in the way. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 19 Accursed is who ever turns aside a judgment which favors a foreigner, and orphan, and widow. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 20 Accursed is the one going to bed with the wife of his father, for he uncovered the marriage veil of his father. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 21 Accursed is the one going to bed with any beast. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 22 Accursed is the one going to bed with a sister from [2father 3or 4mother 1his]. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 23 Accursed is the one going to bed with his mother-in-law. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be! Accursed is the one going to bed with a sister of his wife. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 24 Accursed is the one striking his neighbor with treachery. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 25 Accursed is who ever should take bribes to strike the life [2blood 1of innocent]. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be. 26 Accursed is every man whoever shall not adhere to all the words of this law to do them. And [4shall say 1all 2the 3people], May it be.
